Have had idea for mechanical journal to rival Mimi Pixel's – a parody of 17th century life in Manchester told in ‘knowing’ manner from future perspective. Will try not to be ‘oh they were reet daft back then.’ Hero to work in wool. Attempt humour. Impress Daisy? Might be worth a go. She begins her over-winter in Argentina NEXT MONTH. I say holiday but the transit there and back by boat will take three months alone. If only someone would invent airbourne trams (if they don’t, I will!) If only the damn country hadn’t yet been invented! In any case, and in conclusion, I fear she may become distracted by all that beef and forget about her little ‘cotton socks’ back home.
